To work for and gain distinction as pioneers of good journalism is fundamentally important in Schibsted. That is why the group created the Schibsted Journalism Awards in 2007; to honor exemplary works of journalism in the form of text, photos, sound or living images.
Three awards are presented:
- Best Storytelling
- Best Innovative Entry
- Best Scoop
Each award is worth NOK 200,000.
Editorial material that has been published by the group's journalists and photographers in all the countries in which Schibsted conducts editorial activities are evaluated by an international jury of experts.
The awards ceremony and a journalists seminar for 250 editorial staff are held every year, normally in June.
